“Sleep while baby sleeps” is good advise for new moms and dads, but parents also need to know how to get newborn to sleep without being held so they can get some snooze in.

So we will share a few tips on how to get newborn to sleep without being held.
Newborn sleep is a complicated and simple task, both at the same time. Because ultimately, what we want to do is to soothe baby so they feel like mommy’s warm and cozy womb. We want to try to create the perfect environment so we get a sleepy newborn and they stay asleep until their next feeding cycle.
